yeah im guessing that they shaved it down so they could keep it under weight in Z, so maybe the ESP will stay deep? at the same time though it would be kinda weird to have 2 different molds both called a Nuke

I really don't like Katanas for FH because they're so shallow. I'm sorry to hear they're making them even shallower. I just threw my first nuke Friday and kinda liked it (ESP). Yick.

I agree. That's why I like the Boss more than the Katana.

Please keep the "old mold" nuke! No more of this shallow rim crap! (I was starting to kinda like the nuke...but don't tell my bosses that. They might get jealous.)

This is my fear too!

I assume the change is to manage weight, but to my understanding the z-nuke as had material removed from its esp forerunner.

This means material needs to be added to the mould. this is crazy hard to do compared to cutting a new base. I would there fore guess, the top is the same and the rim is changed out, so 'retooled' is in fact 'new rim' so we can only hope that they keep the 'old rim' tool and the ESP nuke stays the same as it always was.

Anyword on how the Z nuke flies?

Now the nuke sounds to be more like a katana, which does not have as deep a rim as the esp nuke

If you haven't....try out those Star versions of the Katana....nice, domie, 175....I would put it up there with the boss....but the new Z Nuke.....this may be the disc that flies more of a boss route....but could be longer....and responds to the wind better than the katana....but if you haven't tried...the new star katanas are no joke compared to the champion and pro versions

I have been reading a lot about that. So far I haven't had a problem with my ESP. I am glad that they are coming out with some Z's though
